I recently purchased a scrambler that went down and needs a front end (forks, triple tree, wheel, axle, headlight assembly). The stock front end is very difficult to find for a reasonable price and I was wondering if a front end from other Ducati models would fit. For example would say a Monster or a Hypermotard front end fit? Those are much easier to find.

A complete front end from a Monster or Hyper will most likely bolt on fairly easily, it’s the “little things” I guess. Fork length, steering lock, tank clearance. It’s always going to be a Frankenstein though, so you better turn it into a sweet special...

Swap them for which other forks mind if I ask?
Well, something that fits. I've been looking at some Ohlins 848 forks, but i'm not sure if the for ends hang the caliper in the right location. I've got some more measurements to take but it's possible i'll have to swap the whole tree, in which case my plan will take a while longer.... I really just want some better suspension in the front, the stock front end suspension is horrendous.

Any luck with this? I’m in the same boat as you. Insurance totaled my bike but all it needs is new forks. If I can fix it myself by swapping them with another model, I can get her back on the road.

I believe the standard forks are the same length as those on the Hypermotard, no idea about diameter though.
But I've always wondered about a set as an upgrade to a twin disc setup, would hopefully still be compatibly with the ABS system as well.
